Nick Diaz wants to tell his side of the story. He says he didn't dodge a drug test. He wanted to be the headliner and he wanted to fight Joe Riggs.
Diaz, a Stockton MMA fighter who grew up in Lodi, recently dropped out of his Aug. 15 Strikeforce bout against Jay Hieron. Diaz said he didn't scratch the fight solely because he didn't want to take a drug test, like reports from the California State Athletic Commission and from the Web site of Cesar Gracie Jiu Jitsu organization, whom Diaz fights for, stated.
